-- researcher threatening to sue NASA now saying that he suspects the agency is manipulating data.
On climate change so has -- Now -- -- that researcher Chris Horner.
He's a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute -- off author of red hot lies.
Thank you for joining us and give us your two cents it is any of the date -- we rely on any of this data anymore after what we've heard from the emails etc.
What what can we trust now.
Probably just -- satellite data which goes back thirty years which was put in place at great expense to you and me in response to the claimed consensus over catastrophic manmade global cooling.
So you can look at the satellite -- what NASA has been doing.
Is it seems fairly similar to what's been exposed in the UK.
In 2007 when I first issued this Freedom of Information Act request a Canadian statistician named Stephen MacIntyre.
-- -- increasingly hysterical about US temperatures even though they were not in -- going up what if you anyone with a pulse knows they've been going down so he notified NASA.
And that big corrected their temperature data from the US without issuing a -- -- for once and then a few days they went back in and read fudge the numbers.
And so what we've been seeking is the underlying data the computer code in our patients to the code what are they using to constantly change historical data.
And also what was their internal discussion about oh.
Should we corrected that what will be the implications if we do and so on -- and NASA has been remarkably not forthcoming in fact last night.
Two senators bitter and -- off from Louisiana and Oklahoma sent a letter to the NASA inspector general.
Same guard these documents don't destroy anything.
-- to British on this is they were caught doing and let's see what.
Really -- -- inspector general's estimated overseer and not affiliated so we'll have to see what happens with that but let's take a look at some of this data.
You say has changed at NASA so first 1998.
Was the hottest year in its records for the continuous 48 states.
Is that true -- did that change.
Have they changed tires for -- change the top three that -- -- the entire ranking.
Several times so.
Their defense now let's just -- where we are now they're claiming well whatever it's just within a few hundred to the degree to the 1930s.
OK we proved too much you're telling us it's now as hot as it was in the thirties -- page I fail to see the alarm the trend is going down what happened Gretchen is.
They they were adding different stations they've been slowly backing out.
High altitude rural temperature stations to focus on -- sitting in the middle of cities.
And on airport runways and -- -- look at cocky but I want over a barbecue why would NASA be involved in this whole media storm.
Right that's a very good question NASA became increasingly a global warming taxpayer funded agency with the relative decline in space funding.
And when you're talking about seven billion dollars a year writ large in climate related research scientists -- people too.
They began setting things up and this gentleman James Hansen who -- the custodian of the data.
Had a history of yelling that anybody named George Bush has -- president is smuggling him the first one the second one didn't matter.
He's a bit of a committed radical global warming alarmist and he begins -- things -- that appears during George W Bush's presidency they do have a lot of money at stake.
Well and we're all waiting to see what happens at the climate change conference will take place in company taken on Monday Chris -- a great to have music guests thank you.
